CLASS ON STAGE’ AT THE STATE THEATRE
David McAllister, Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, introduced the Company on stage and invited them to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the Ballet Society for its 50th Birthday Year. It wasn’t a bad rendition but suggest they should stick to their dancing? But David was his usual relaxed self and thanked the Society for its long time support of the Company.
Tristan Message, Ballet Master, took the class and was on microphone which makes it so much more interesting for the audience. Tristan also thanked the Ballet Society for their years of support to the Company from a former dancer’s and artistic staff’s point of view.
James Worladge (Philanthropy Manager) had arranged for each Ballet Society Member to receive a fragrant flower and a letter of thanks from David McAllister which was most appreciated by those present.
